Picking up where I left off yesterday, the south side beyond the main entrance at the Lord Elgin Hotel also had ice sculptures.
One more of the sculptures here at the hotel- this bear was outside the main entrance.
There are a number of hotels officially part of Winterlude, and some of them have more than the usual ice sculpture noting them as such. The Metcalfe is nearby, and this ice sculpture is outside. I photographed it some days later.
And the Chateau Laurier can always be counted on to have ice sculptures outside. Here they are.
...they look like cold fine crystal.ReplyDelete
So much creativity!ReplyDelete
Gosh there are a lot of sculptures. Are the artists paid to do this work?ReplyDelete
So much beauty and skill to see. It would be a very temporary exhibition in our climate though 13 C here again today.ReplyDelete
Tolle Skulpturen aber auch bei uns sind die Temperaturen nicht für Eis Skulpturen geeignet.ReplyDelete
I wonder how many ice blocks they break before they get it right!ReplyDelete
Mais um belo conjunto de esculturas, aproveito para desejar um bom Domingo.ReplyDelete
